Odfjell Drilling semi-submersible wins Aker BP contract

Noway’s Odfjell Drilling has received its first call-off under the alliance agreement it signed with Aker BP last month.

The call-off sees 2010-built semi-submersible rig Deepsea Stavanger start a 12-month contract as soon as it returns to Norway from a contract in South Africa with Total, which is expected to be in the second quarter of 2019.

The firm contract value is around $105m plus potential performance bonuses.
